Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis original book focuses on some of the 20th-century's "minor utopias" whose stories, overshadowed by the horrors of the Holocaust and the Gulag, suggest that the future need not be as catastrophic as the past. By restoring minor utopias to their rightful place in the recent past, Winter fills an important gap in the history of social thought and action in the 20th century.
PortraitJay Winter is Charles J. Stille Professor of History, Yale University. He is author or coauthor of more than a dozen books including Remembering War: The Great War between Memory and History in the 20th Century, published by Yale University Press. He lives in Guilford, CT.
Pressestimmen"'Winter is an acclaimed cultural historian of World War I and early 20th-century conflicts. Here, with refreshing, new-millennium insight, he reflects on inter-world war attempts - excluding the awful accomplishments born of the ostensibly idealistic goals of the century's roster of monster totalitarians - to build a better, fairer society on a grand scale... Highly recommended.' Library Journal"
